Why Romney’s Campaign Advisors Should Be Fired
May 23, 2012 2 Comments
President Obama is surely correct in every detail when he says this:
“Mr. Romney is responsible for the proposals he’s putting forward for how he says he’s going to fix the economy,” Obama continued. “And if the main basis for him suggesting he can do a better job is his track record as the head of a private equity firm, then both the upsides and the downsides are worth examining.”
Now, this is sort of embarrassing for me to have to admit, because it shows how ill-informed I must be, but I had no idea that the Mitt Romney campaign was putting forth the argument that the ‘main basis’ for why he should be made President-guy was that he used to be associated with Bain Capital. I just had no idea whatsoever that Bain Capital is what Mitt Romney was basing his campaign on. If that’s really the case then personally I think all of Romney’s campaign advisors need to be fired ASAP.
But President Obama has a perfectly logical and valid point here: if that’s what he’s basing his campaign on, then both the upsides and downsides are worth examining. (As he is currently only focusing on the downsides, I presume Obama will be presenting detailed outline of the upsides for us shortly.)
